Small teams of students and staff make our school a place where middle school students experience a strong sense of belonging and connection. Our WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) program develops eighth grade students into leaders and mentors to our sixth graders, supporting them in a successful transition to middle school. This is Highland Park Middle School.
